90th Anniversary of Amy Johnson's Solo Flight to Australia
On the morning of 5th May 1930, a small green Gipsy Moth aeroplane took off from Croydon Airport on what was to be a record breaking and thrilling solo flight to Australia. This flight captured the imagination of the world and made an international superstar of its pilot, Amy Johnson.
Hosted by Jason the Gipsy Moth aeroplane, this workshop experience introduces the pioneering pilot, Amy Johnson, and her amazing adventures in aviation. Children can find out about the challenges Amy faced as she planned and then undertook her incredible solo flight to Australia 90 years ago this May.
With Amy Johnson as our inspiration and significant person, children will explore the wonders of modern flight, stories of endurance and technological advancement in aviation and how a love of flying inspired this young woman to fly solo half way around the world.
